Here I am eating my words (which I would reference if I could but I can’t find) about never wearing knee-high socks because I’m too old. You guys, I am waaay too old to pull off the over-the-knee socks trend, but I think I can do a just-under-the-knee sock thing, right? As long as they are with boots? And the color of the socks is similar to the color of the boots?
Maybe six years ago I was told (you know who you are) that my adorable knee-high socks were not appropriate or professional for my social work job. I begrudgingly agreed, and stayed far away from those socks because I associated them with the trauma of criticism. Rest assured that no counseling took place while wearing these socks. Only dog-walking, margarita-drinking, and party-attending.
Glad I got all that off of my chest.
